I probably got a bit too desperate: Joe Root

Joe Root, England’s test captain and perhaps the best batter for the country for the last five years or so, has revealed his thoughts about the iconic Ashes tussle set to take place next month. He said that he acted a little too desperate in the last two Ashes tours in Australia as the hosts routed the English men 9-0 but he has been in wonderful touch recently. Joe Root also said that Brisbane, which used to be the stronghold of Australia is vulnerable now especially since a second-string Indian team defeated them in Gabba this year.

Look at that India team that won at the Gabba. They were a long way from their first-choice XI but they had no fear. They stood up to Australia and won crucial parts of that Test. It will give every player in our squad a huge amount of confidence and just plant a little bit of doubt in Australia's mind. Having to go back there and play again for the first time against us, what with it being such a stronghold for them for such a long period of time. We now know that it's not. The two previous tours I think if anything I probably got a bit too desperate. That extra bit of experience off the back of a fruitful year for me personally puts me in a better place.
